3 soldiers martyred, 7 injured in Afghan cross-border attack: ISPR
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Three soldiers were martyred and seven others were injured when a group of 60 to 70 terrorists attacked Pakistani Army troops undertaking fencing efforts along the Pak Afghan border in Alwara, North Waziristan
According to the Inter-Service Public Relation (ISPR), a group of terrorists attacked troops undertaking fencing along the border in Alwara, North Wazirstan from Afghanistan.
The ISPR said that the Pakistan army effectively responded and repulsed the attack, killing and injuring scores of terrorists.
“The three Pakistan Army soldiers Lance Naik Ali, Lance Naik Nazeer and Sep Imdadullah were martyred while defending a cross-border attack by a group of 60-70 terrorists,” the ISPR stated.
“While Pakistan security forces are solidifying border security through fencing and construction of forts to deny liberty of action to the terrorists, Afghan Security Forces and the authorities need to have more effective control in [the] border region to support Pakistan’s efforts as well as deny use of Afghan soil against Pakistan,” the statement read.
The ISPR further asserted that Pakistan’s fencing efforts will continue despite all such impediments.
